To help you out, and to make the process as swift as possible, below are answers to these concerns.
Dealing with customs when sending a parcel to Burundi
As with all African countries, Burundi lies outside of the EU, so parcel delivery there may be slightly more complex than you are used to. You will need to deal with customs and that can be done by filling out all the necessary paperwork as provided by your chosen courier after purchase. You must make sure this information is completed to the best of your knowledge or else your parcel may be delayed or will not be let through at all!
What can’t be sent to Burundi?
When it comes to sending a parcel to any country, there are certain products that couriers will not allow to be sent, including weapons, drugs and counterfeit goods. As well as this, Burundi itself has a number of restricted and prohibited products that it will not allow through its borders, so make sure that you keep this in mind when arranging cheap parcel delivery to Burundi. Examples of such products include meat products, plant products and pornographic materials. If you have a parcel that you wish to send, but you are unsure if it will be allowed through customs and into Burundi, then before purchasing your delivery, we recommend you contact the Burundi customs office beforehand to check.
How to address your parcel delivery UK to Burundi
Dating back many years before its independence, Burundi has seen heavy French influence in its social affairs. As such, one of the most commonly spoken languages is French, and this is the typical language used for addressing any parcels when you send a parcel to Burundi. As such, when labelling be sure to swap English words like “Mr” to the French equivalent of “Monsieur”. Do also be aware that, unlike the UK, Burundi doesn’t use a postcode system. In fact, many African countries don’t use such a system, which is important to remember when arranging parcel delivery UK to Burundi.
Delivery times for Burundi
Typical economy delivery times can be anywhere from 3-5 days and upwards when you choose Burundi parcel delivery. However, this time can be brought down if you choose to purchase the express or special delivery option. There are of course a number of other factors which will affect the delivery time for your Burundi parcel delivery. This includes where exactly in the country your parcel is posted to. As mentioned, the capital city is where most shipments arrive and there are roads connecting all major towns and cities. However, these are not as advanced as the roads in the UK. Also, there is currently no train service in place, though there are talks in place to try and establish one. Finally, to help speed up the delivery time, it is recommended that you follow all of the above tips as closely as possible. A poorly addressed parcel could severely delay delivery times and even potentially means that the parcel may not arrive at its intended destination at all.
